New York death metal pioneers SUFFOCATION will release their new live album, Live In North America, on November 12th via Nuclear Blast Records. Today, the band releases the track video for the second single, “Pierced From Within”. Watch the video featuring photographs taken by Mike Randall, below.
Terrance Hobbs comments, “Hope you all enjoy this live version of ‘Pierced from Within’. This song has always been a staple of the SUFFOCATION arsenal as it’s one of our favorite musical pieces to play. When going through the live recording and figuring out which songs to tease this release we didn’t even have a second thought when it came to ‘Pierced from Within’ and we couldn’t be more proud of how this live version sounds. This song has transcended almost 3 decades and still holds its potency in our set to this very day as well as being intricate with breaking major ground for us in the death metal world since its original release. Hope you all crank it out loud and let SUFFOCATION fill your homes with some of our best death metal through the years!”

SUFFOCATION created the template for the brutal death metal genre in the early 90s. Landmark albums such as Effigy Of The Forgotten and Pierced From Within also went on to inspire the birth of the tech-death and slam death metal genres. With the departure of original vocalist Frank Mullen, the band marks an end of an era with a live album recorded live during his last North American tour. Mixed and mastered by Christian Donaldson (BEYOND CREATION, CRYPTOPSY) this release plays like a “best of”, and is the perfect farewell to one of the most influential singers in extreme music. The artwork for the album was created by Jon Zig.
